March 12th, 2023
Fort Lauderdale’s bustling Las Olas neighborhood is set to welcome its very own Moxies on Wednesday, March 1st with the opening of the Canada-based brand’s second South Florida restaurant at Las Olas Main; its sixth in the United States. For more than 30 years the concept has proven itself a leader in the upscale casual dining space with a blend of high-end design, uncompromising food and beverage items, and a friendly, energetic approach to hospitality.
The new location is perfectly poised to accommodate locals, out-of-town diners and Fort Lauderdale cocktail connoisseurs with its trademark, signature ambiance and top-tier service.

The spacious, inviting space will accommodate more than 366 people in its two story building with indoor/outdoor bars featured on both levels. Notable design elements include lush indoor greenery, including a faux vertical garden that anchors the grand dining room, whimsical wallpaper, neutral tones throughout and gold features, as well as an impressive floor to ceiling wine display. Sports fans will appreciate the more than 20 LED TVs in the welcoming lounge and bar area, which features creative cocktail and bar bites menus. There will be ample space to cheer on favorite teams or just mingle throughout the two level bar experience.
